An awesome shakedown street opener, one of my favorite versions of this song. A solid show, I recommend this one to heads that like 84-85 dead.

Spanish Jam Man
Usually whenever wisking thru the archive listings and spotting the words "Spanish Jam" I stop and consider. The Spanish Jam is one of my favorite pieces of GD music.
Also, when wisking, I spot the name of Rango Keshavan I always pause and consider. His recordings are usually choice.
Put Spanish Jam and Rango Keshavan together and do a search and voila! You have found heaven ~ in this case, heaven described as any place above the earth. And Here is the Grateful Dead Doing Their Level Best to Keep It All Above Board.
Not necessarily a spectacular show to write home describing to your mother, Matilda, but nun the less, something good enough by which to supply a review.
Though not bass-y, the bass is well-articulated the way I like it: one can hear all the nuance of the felt picking sounds as Phil claws his way across that fretboard.
Probably doesn't deserve any purist's 5 stars, but at 4.5 it's enough of a 5-er to me.
Some live their life in the dream they are born into.
And when it's All Over Now, Baby Blue, it is, and thankfully, there is nothing left to change, to omit, or to add.
